What is Juniper Networks Windows In-Box Junos Pulse Client?
Juniper Networks Windows In-Box Junos Pulse Client is a third-party VPN product that is shipped in-box as part of the Windows operating system. Windows In-Box Pulse Client appears as a VPN Provider network option within Windows 8.1 and later endpoints, including Windows RT 8.1 endpoints. It allows the user to establish a Layer 3 VPN connection to Junos Pulse Secure Access Service and to create, manage, and remove Pulse VPN connections on the Windows endpoint through Windows PowerShell scripts. The user can also create connections manually on the endpoint. Windows In-Box Junos Pulse Client provides a subset of the features that are available through the Junos Pulse for Windows client.

In case it's not clear, or for those that have not been following along, update 2919355 is the Windows 8.1 Update that was released back in April.
So, this Security Advisory only affects those systems that are running the April update to Windows 8.1, or have performed a clean install using the Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISO's from Microsoft.
